Top-ten ranking for Hans Peter and GLOCK’s Dream Boy
Exactly three years after GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud, riding GLOCK’s Flirt, took victory in the 2016 Dressage World Cup Final in Gothenburg, the successful Dutchman once again took a horse to the peak of world-class competition, namely eleven-year-old GLOCK’s Dream Boy, with whom he qualified for the 2019 World Cup Final in Gothenburg (04-07/04/2019). “McDreamy”, as the stallion is endearingly named at home, acclimatised outstandingly well at the fully-booked Scandinavium and exhibited great concentration and ease on both days.
Following eighth place (75.236%) in the FEI Dressage World Cup™ Final - Grand Prix on Friday (05/04), on what was now his seventh World Cup Final, Hans Peter again achieved a top-ten place in the freestyle. This technically challenging freestyle, to a dedicated accompaniment by Joost Peters, received a score of 80.286% from the panel of judges, meaning tenth place among a distinguished field of participants.
Eleven-year-old GLOCK’s Dream Boy N.O.P., son of Vivaldi, and GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud concluded their first World Cup Final together with great satisfaction, and will now direct their focus to the forthcoming 2019 European Dressage Championships, to be staged in the Netherlands.
